In general it is a good place with a good atmosphere where you can meet new people, they also manage very nice activities to encourage socialising. Probably the only bad point is the wifi, is absolutely bad, but as I was there to enjoy a good time rather than being connected to internet, then the final score is positive
This place is a bit of a 'battery farm' for travellers. But it's got great organisation re night life so easy to meet people. No frills. Beds and booze.
This is a very expensive hostel in comparison to what you get. The bunks are made for very short people and are more temporary bunks rather than dorm bunks. The rooms are very hot and aircon doesn't really work. The lockers are available but it's difficult to use your own lock (staff will help but also the have a vending machine for locks). Breakfast isn't worth the money. Wifi is spotty at best. The staff however are very helpful and fun.
Awesome place to stay, wicked atmosphere and nights out available to meet awesome people! Loved it!
A regular hostel with a beautiful roof garden with a view. I both liked and disliked the location — it is very close to central railway station (Roma Termin), but the neighborhood is really dirty with lots of homeless africans and indians, poor paving slab etc. Staff is excellent.
I stayed at the hostel with a friend of mine to see the sites of Rome and this was by far the most fun I've had at a hostel in all my travelling! The staff were friendly and easy going and the cocktail nights on the rooftop were amazing! Cheap, awesome cocktails and everyone from the hostel was mingling getting to know each other! Only takes 10-15 mins to get to the colosseum but if your lazy the metro is about 200m away! All in all good value. Highly recommend!

I stayed four nights and I really appreciated it. It's closed to the rimini train station! Everything can be walked from the hostel (if you like to walk... Colosseum: 30 min walk). The staff was nice and helpful! The food is ok. They should bring people together for the night. Plus the toilets in dorms should be more clean! But overwall I recommend this hostel!!!
It was very close to the train and bus station termini, the directions were easy to get to. Once I got there, I was allowed to leave my bag downstairs in a common area. I didn't really like the sound if that bc it's not really safe. But everyone is trustworthy. It's also near the supermarket where I bought my water and breakfast fruits. The staff was always helpful and very kind. They also coordinated events such as a cookout where we met other travelers. The rooms and the bathrooms were clean.
Good atmosphere and very fun rooftop cocktail party some nights! Pretty far walking from most attractions but this was to be expected because Rome is so spread out. At least it was very close to the main train station which was nice for arriving and departing.
Staff was very helpful. The facilities were clean and available for use. Only one problem with the shower being clogged in our room but they came right away to help us. One of the staff members was quite dismissive however but that wasn't a problem because of the helpfulness of the other ones. They had a rooftop BBQ whn we got there and we met some cool people in the hostel. Great place to stay. A little closer to city would be nice but it was a great atmosphere and I recommend staying there.
Very good hostel for a 3 night stay. Rooms were great, breakfast was good at a fair price and the free map also included the local supermarkets, which is great if you're focusing on eating cheap. WIFI didn't work for me at all, so ended up having to go elsewhere. The cocktail party was pretty good on my first night and a good opportunity to meet other backpackers out on the terrace.
first time in a hostel for me, i would definitely recommend it to anyone. although some roomies were a bit messy, cleaners come every day and do a good job, and there are plenty of things to do from the tours of the vatican to parties at night.

My bed was dirty and used when I got to my room (it was definitely the right bed). The staff lost my reservation for one night, I showed them my booking confirmation and they just said "Too Bad." Other than that, this place has a good central location and provides a good atmosphere to meet other guests. Don't take their guided tours, it's a ripoff. If you want to see the city do it on your own.
NAS IS THE BEST.

Comfortable Hostel with air conditioning, a nice roof top bar and inside bar. Staff could be more patient and proactive when explaining things and also recommend places to go.
Good location, really close to Termini and if you like to walk you can get everywhere on foot. Great atmosphere with party nights out and bbq and cocktails night at the terrace every other night. Rooms were big.
Nearly perfect. No complaints. Really loved the atmosphere and the Hostelers here. Very kind staff - all of them. i would definitely give them my business again. Good room with a nice openable window. Plenty of space. Lockers only for small backpack - not the big one.
Friendly staff, good location but the showers were tiny and filthy. There was also a lot if noise from the street in the morning - mostly dumpster trucks emptying glass.
